An '80s movie turned into a musical, a chance to revisit big hair and big shoulder pads, and also an opportunity to take a fresh look at misogynist values in the workplace, what more could you want in this day and age of #metoo and #timesup?
Grab a coworker or friend to join you at the next Arlington Friends of the Drama production, 9 to 5 The Musical, with music and lyrics by Dolly Parton and book by Patricia Resnick, and based on the seminal 1980 hit movie.

Altar Boyz, winner of an Outer Critics Circle Award, comes to the Cape Playhouse after a five-year run off-Broadway. The musical tells the wholly — make that holy — inspiring story of five small-town boys (Matthew, Mark, Luke, Juan, and Abraham) trying to save the world one screaming fan at a time. Their pious pop act, including lyrics like "Girl, you make me wanna wait" and "Jesus called me on my cell phone," worked wonders on the Ohio bingo-hall-and-pancake-breakfast circuit. But when fate brings them to New York, will the Boyz take a bite out of the forbidden apple? With angelic voices, sinfully spectacular dancing, and a touching story, Altar Boyz is destined to rock the masses!

This show is comedy, theater, rock concert, and dance party all rolled into one.
Thirty-five million people know what Blue Man Group is about. Now it's your turn.
The Capitol Steps began more than 30 years ago as a group of Senate staffers who set out to satirize the very people and places that employed them. In the years that followed, many of the Steps ignored the conventional wisdom ("Don't quit your day job!"), and although not all of the current members of the Steps are former Capitol Hill staffers, taken together, the performers have worked in a total of 18 Congressional offices and represent 62 years of collective House and Senate staff experience.
Since they began, the Capitol Steps have recorded over 35 albums, including their latest, Orange Is the New Barack. They've been featured on NBC, CBS, ABC, and PBS, and can be heard twice a year on National Public Radio stations nationwide during their Politics Takes a Holiday radio specials.
No matter who or what is in the headlines, you can bet the Capitol Steps will tackle both sides of the political spectrum and all things equally foolish. There's never a shortage of material.
1. Ice cream. 2. Water fights. 3. Staying up past your bedtime and being allowed to watch TV. These are just a few items on a list of things worth living for compiled by a young girl trying to ease her mother's depression at the start of Every Brilliant Thing. Through adulthood, as the list grows, she learns the deep significance it holds in her own life. It stays with her as she goes to college, falls in love, and builds a home. A tribute to the irrepressible resilience inside all of us and the capacity to find delight in the everyday, Every Brilliant Thing is a charming new play that enlists members of the audience to help tell its story.

Late Nite Catechism is an uproarious piece of theater that takes audience members back to the children they once were. The irrepressible Sister teaches an adult catechism class to a room full of "students" (the audience). Over the course of the play, Sister goes from benevolent instructor, rewarding the students for correct answers with glow-in-the-dark rosaries and laminated saint cards, to authoritative drill sergeant. These abrupt mood swings are bound to strike a resonant chord with everyone who survived the ups and downs of going to school with an omniscient authoritarian at the helm.
Little Orphan Danny is the uproarious musical memoir of the Dan Band's brilliant frontman, Dan Finnerty. Growing up a small-town altar boy in a nice conservative family doesn't always suit our adopted protagonist. Childhood outbursts of blasphemy in church only lead to pathetic adolescent attempts at playing sports. But of the many lessons he'll learn, none could prepare him for the fateful day he and his mother meet the woman who gave birth to him. This musical is an irreverent yet tender story of a boy and the women who made him.
Benedick is never getting married. Not ever. And Beatrice can't imagine loving a man she can't tolerate! They might just be the perfect couple. While the villain Don Jon sows seeds of rumor and discord, the success of two noble marriages hinges on the hilarious efforts of local constables. Shakespeare's most frequently performed comedy is a joyous romp that sparkles with wit and romance.
Seen by over 10 million people worldwide, this wildly popular comedy keeps every audience laughing as they try to outwit the suspects and catch the killer. New clues and up-to-the-minute improvisation deliver a different show every night.
Set in Louisiana in the 1980s, Robert Harling's Steel Magnolias is equally hilarious and heartwarming. At Truvy's beauty shop, six southern ladies gather each week to chat and support each other through thick and thin. But those bonds are about to be tested when M'Lynn and her daughter Shelby face a life-changing crisis. Harling's play touches on love, loss, and enduring friendship.

Empty nesters Greg and Kate have moved back to Manhattan after 22 years in the suburbs. Greg finds Sylvia, a street-smart lab/poodle mix, and brings her home. She promptly becomes a bone of contention between Greg and Kate, testing their marriage to comic and touching effect. This play by two-time Pulitzer Prize winner A.R. Gurney looks into the complexities of love and commitment, asking what it truly means to be devoted to your partner…and how you choose between the love of your life and man's best friend.
What do you do if you're the last two Jews in Afghanistan? You rewrite the Torah, of course!
